Re: Oregon and California

Charlie Hope everything is going well for you! How hard would it be to level the playing field in Oregon and California? When you have management solutions in both State's, and they do!

Re: New proposed AZ lion/bobcat law

Does Arizona have a "Hunting, Fishing, Trapping" amendment in the state constitution? If so, that may help knock this bill out before it even gets started. If not though, once this legislation is defeated, that is something Arizona Sportsmen should go after. I am not sure what I could do ...
